New series first semester grades (repost from other ‘blog 10/27/05)

Well, since it’s now deep enough in the fall TV season for some series to be showing repeats in the ramp up to November Sweeps, I thought I’d catch you up with my current thoughts on the new series and even just the latest seasons of favorites. I think for now, though, an update of new series will have to do.

(Since this was originally posted, some of the shows have been canceled. Reunion, Kitchen Confidential, and Threshold)

Threshold (11/4/05?)

Had the ill-fated husband of Jack’s lover from 24. This show is creepy.

Surface: Ep. 4

Hmm… Dog + Hungry sea creature = Compleately predictable.

How I Met Your Mother: The Pineapple Incident

Great episode. Bonus points if you recognized Danica McKellar a.k.a Winnie Cooper.

Two and a Half Men: Something Salty and Twisted

Only watched because I was waiting for Out of Practice to be on.

Out of Practice: Guilt Trip

Medium: The Reckoning

Threshold (10/21/05)

Pretty good episode. Unfortunately Threshold has been canceled, even with the move to Tuesday, apparently the ratings just weren’t good enough. I still have enjoyed it, especially it’s inside-looking-out perspective on government conspiracy as opposed to the other alien invasion shows on major networks. I still have a few more episodes saved that I will watch and I don’t know how many more they plan to air, but I hope they will at least show whatever has already been filmed.
